Here at George Mason University a.k.a GMU or Mason, classes are small and the professors are shockingly always available to answer questions by email or in person. Lecture halls are usually semi-big but then they are divided into Labs where you are able to get one on one assistance with your instructors. I learned so much within my first semester there and was well prepared entering my second semester. My professors were compromising and taught me new ways to study, write papers and do presentations. My strengths were brought out and my so called weaknesses are no longer categorized as...

    George Mason University is a big school with over 30,000 enrolled students. However, this intimidating number does not mean that you cannot find your own little home on campus. The people are welcoming, diverse in personalities and cultures, and welcome everyone with open arms.

    George Mason is so diverse, if you walk anywhere on campus or the Johnson Center which is the hot spot for students to purchase foods and hangout, you will hear so many difference languages of different nationalities! The campus is beautiful ,encompassed with both architectural buildings and lots of greenery, including many trees in certain areas and a pond! There are also many opportunities for students on campus and its located near D.C. to make access to opportunities even better. I am in love with George Mason, and am proud to be a Patriot!

    George Mason University is a prestigious public university, in my eyes. Its location, dorm life, and extracurricular activities can satisfy many people. In addition, the opportunities to finding a career, seeking a social life, and achieving academics are better known within this college.

    A good school to attend. Not the most diverse school. Overall, it is a business so it is a money hungry school.

    Clean community with friendly people and fun activities, but constant campus construction and a confusing layout can be a turn off. Many students commute and work and these students don't seem to form those long-lasting college friendships always seen in movies. Some departments have less funding or notoriously difficult instructors, but all professors genuinely want their students to succeed.

    GMU is a melting pot of a university. As cliche as it sounds, you'll meet various types of people from different backgrounds. You can end up with a very global group of friends.
